    The sound is not a lifter type sound, also it
    is multiple not singular and is comming from
    the front center of the engine, this noise
    is only audiable at idle and goes away when
    you rev the engine, I was thinking wrist pins
    but the oil pressure is good and every once
    in awhile this sound almost goe away but when
    I shut off the engine and restart it comes back

    In essence when this engine is idling it almost
    sounds like it is a diesel but not as loud

    all of sudden, there is clicking noise come from my equinox, had several mechanics look at it and no one can figure it out, no dash or engines lights are on, still runs, starts everything good, no hesitation when driving, pull engine cover, all pistons and rocker arms are all working great, what could causing this noise?

If this engine is the type that has the shaft driven oil pump, it could be the shaft that is causing the noise. Basically, the oil pump is in the lower front part of the engine, and has a shaft that is driven be a gear on the cam. If this shaft is worn and has play in it, it will knock around a bit and cause a low pitched click. The odd thing is that the noise can resonate through the cam and not seem to be coming from the location of the shaft.

Some lifter may be faulty (stucks).

    if noise is only when starting for awhile it seems that oil pressure has not yet reached at normal. after about 15-20 seconds oil is at normal and lifters operate without noise.

    Does this noise reappear everytime engine runs at idle?

    So check and make sure that timing belt changed is fitted correctly and spark timing at TDC avance for this engine model.

1985 toyota mr2 engine noise


It still could be the throw-out bearing. When going bad, they have a high pitched whine or whistling, and if bad enough, could imitate a vibrating sensation. IDK, I would have a mechanic there listen to it.

Metal on metal sounding clicking noise while the wheels are turning but only on the frot driver and passenger wheels. What is going on? It started out only on the passenger side and then after the tire...


Is the noise a screeching high pitch or a growling low pitch?
It sounds to me that the CV joints might be bad and you need brakes.
high pitch would be the brake warning tabs
the low pitch would be the brake pads are gone and you are on the rotors gringing away metal

How do i know if my alternator is going out on my n'2003 dodge carava'


Electrically speaking: If you have a "battery gauge" it would be reading outside of 13-14 volts. If you have a light it will be on.

Mechanically speaking: You would hear a low humming sound

Speaking symptoms: When you drive the lights get dimmer as you go

How to fix water pum


I believe this car runs the 3.0 iter V6. If this is the case the front of the engine will need to come off with the timing belt as the water pump is driven by the timing belt (center top of engine) It will be a full day but with the right tools and spirit you can do this in six hours or so.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

2003 Mitsubishi Montero (full-size) check engine light is on, the engine sounds like it knocks as I accellerate and the shift diff. lights blink after driving 25 or 30 miles.


The engine is probably making a knocking sound because the oil needs to be changed or replaced. The check engine light is indicating that you will need regular dealership servicing soon, however you can still drive the vehicle but depending on mileage it will determine what services are required.
